Chris is set to appear in the March 31, April 1 and April 7 episodes, according to USA Today.

Executive producer Mark Burnett said: "He's such an authentic voice in the industry. We could not be happier. There's a massive level of respect from the singers and the surprise from them (when they meet him): 'Whoa! Chris Martin. Wow!'."

Current guest mentors include Miranda Lambert, while Kelly Clarkson, Alanis Morissette and Cher have previously taken up the role.

Chris, who is married to Gwyneth Paltrow, had been rumoured to be taking over Keith Urban's spinning chair as coach on the Australian version of the show.
